What are binary beats?
Now, some of you may not know what binary beats are (hence why you’re reading a post about them!). But I assure you they’re extremely easy to learn and even easier to use.
Binary beats is a free-to-download application that turns music into binary code (similar to morse code). making it perfect for people who have trouble meditating or relaxing because of distracting thoughts.
The cool thing about binary beats is that your brain can only focus on one thing at a time—you can either listen to your music, or you can listen to the sounds produced by binary beats.
Benefits of using binary beats
You don’t have to sit in a quiet room for long hours to meditate on your own; you can use binary beats while running, cooking, or exercising and still get beneficial results.
Not only that, but it doesn’t take as much time as traditional meditation because each session typically lasts 30-60 minutes max, so you can set aside a chunk of time once or twice a day.
Tips for beginners
We all know that meditation can be incredibly beneficial for a variety of reasons, but here are some basic tips to get you started: Start small. If you’re new to meditation, it’s easy for your mind to wander and slip into stressful thoughts.
Don’t worry! If you find yourself getting distract or frustrated, take a deep breath and gently guide your thoughts back toward peace. Create a comfortable atmosphere.
Tips for advanced users
One way you can get even more out of binary beats is by using more than one set of them. Especially when they’re contrasting—the lightness and darkness in sync together, that is. For example, try placing some binary beats on your computer. Tablet screen while working on a task that requires attention.
Then put another set on your television or phone while you work through something else requiring less attention (like doing laundry). You’ll be surprise at how much it helps increase productivity throughout your day!
The link between stress and productivity
In fact, there’s a strong link between stress and productivity. Having a level of stress in your life actually improves productivity. This is where binary beats come into play.
Here’s how they work: wear headphones that are connect to binary beats for about one hour per day.
The software plays two tones that travel through your ears. As one tone reaches your brain, it stimulates one-half of your brain (left or right), which produces either relaxation or stimulation.
